Discover the intimate portraits of English painter Stanley Spencer in the village he loved.

The exhibition includes paintings and drawings, mostly of people with whom Spencer had a personal connection – friends and family from the area – but also later portraits of paying clients.

Highlights include Roy, a pen-and-ink drawing of a five-year-old brother of a friend in church, which Spencer completed when he was only 16 himself.
